An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so on. These files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your web server.

The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
